I am confident that if you rounded up all of the kids who learned about feelings and how to express them from Fred Rogers, not only would those kids be relatively well-adjusted adults, but they would also be the adults who have compassion for their fellow man. And, even likelier, they wouldn't be the kind of people who use bogus interpretations of their faith to bolster legislation that seeks to disempower the oppressed. Mister Rogers helped raise a few generations of children who needed to hear from someone that they were exactly who they should be. That they were good people who could do great things. This is an appropriate use of taxpayer money. This is how we make a better world.
